For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

  1. Awesome painting, Amanda. Beautiful job on a complicated scene. At least it looks complicated to me. I can only imagine the problems you solved as you worked this to completion. I assume the client was happy with it. Best, Candace.

  3. Thanks Candace....it certainly was complicated....I think the 'truck' was what drove me insane, but I enjoyed painting it. It's something that I would enjoy doing with my family and it's a subject matter I enjoy painting...and yes, the client is thrilled, which makes me feel extra proud. Cheers, Amanda
